Philadelphia native Bruce Buschel published a piece two weeks ago entitled "The city of brotherly losers
," in which he took an armchair cultural anthropologist's perspective in considering the significance of the Philadelphia Phillies' 10,000th loss
. Buschel's soon-to-be-released Walking Broad
is a memoir in which he returns to the city of his youth and walks the length of Broad Street, roughly 13 miles from north to south. Come hear what he has to say about the experience tomorrow, Wednesday
, at 7:00 p.m.
in the Central Library's Montgomery Auditorium. (This event is free
; no tickets required.)
